I have also included notes on solving equilibrium constant equations algebraically  which I think are going to appear on the new exams (although not with quadratic equations).

I have changed terminology in 1.2 revision guide calculations to use uncertainty instead of error.

The other chapters I have changed have been labelled with (updated February 2017)

I have also produced a aqa-mechanisms-a-level-summary for the new syllabus
